The 2013 Medaille College Golf Classic was held on Monday, August 5 at Transit Valley Country Club, where a full field of golfers converged for an afternoon of golf and an evening of dinner, drinks and good company to support Medaille College and its students.
Chaired by Nate Marton, director of operations at Medaille College and Jim Spano, president of Buffalo Office Interiors, the 2013 Golf Classic, held in memory of Allen Lee Downing, raised over $38,000 for endowed scholarships* at Medaille.
Allen Lee Downing was a student enrolled in the MBA program when he tragically passed away at the age of 27 following a motorcycle accident. Allen's passion for learning and commitment to community service directly reflects the College's goals and priorities.
A huge thank you to this year's sponsors, who helped make the event such a success.
Details for the 2014 Golf Classic will be available soon!

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
